On Thursday, The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) announced that registration for 2019/ 2020 Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) will begin in December.
Dr Fabian Benjamin who is the Head of Media of the Board, at the boards Computer Based Test (CBT) centre in Abuja announced this while addressing newsmen during the conduct of promotion exercise for the Nigerian Customs Service.
According to Benjamin, no specific date has been fixed for the commencement of the registration yet.
He said that plans were in motion to do so as soon as possible as the board was initially waiting for the pronouncement of the presidency on the reduction of the examinations fee, which was formally announced on Wednesday.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Wednesday approved the downward review of the examination registration fees from N5,000 to N3,500 effective from January 2019.
The Minister of Education, Malam Adamu Adamu, announced this after the meeting.
Benjamin said it was commendable what the President had done as he was someone, who had always had the interest of the masses at heart and would prove to ensure that no Nigerian was deprived of tertiary education.
”The president has over time, expressed concern that the charges were high.
”Our consistent remittance has proven that something could actually be done and even if charges are reduced, examinations can still be conducted with no service suffering any issue of funding.
”The president has taken this bold step, we will see what happens after this reduction and if need be for further reduction, Mr President will do so in no distant time because he has concerns for the ordinary Nigerian on the streets.”
